British Horse Racing Tips – 18 July 2020

Horse Racing

With the British horse racing schedule rolling onto Saturday, we are offered what is a stacked day of meetings from the likes of York, Newbury, Haydock and Bath.

On that note, for those of you out there looking to stick on a weekend flutter, we have searched far and wide to find you a couple of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for throughout Saturday.


Betting Tip: UNIVERSAL ORDER win – 7/2 @ Betfair

13:55 PM – York – Race 4

For our opening Tip of the Day, we take a look at what is a stacked afternoon at York and the Group 3 John Smith’s Silver Cup Stakes.

While MOONLIGHT SPIRIT (9/4 with Bet365) might open Saturday’s five-horse line-up as a standout pick with the bookmakers, UNIVERSAL ORDER should be looking to build off of what was another eye-catching display last time out. Claiming victory at Newmarket on June 28th and marching to the victory in the Class 1 Betway Fred Archer Stakes, the four-year-old is held in high regard by trainer David Simcock and has enjoyed a real purple patch either side of racing’s enforced break.

Including opening 2020 with a win out in the UAE, UNIVERSAL ORDER has claimed the victory in three of his last four starts and should be looking to make another statement among a favourable field.


Betting Tip: SONGKRAN win – 5/2 @ William Hill

*Odds are correct at time of writing and are subject to change without prior notice.

19:05 PM – Bath – Race 6

For our second Tip of the Day, we turn our attention to an exciting night at Bath and the Class 5 valuerater.co.uk Handicap.

Really laying down a marker and only going from strength to strength after swapping trainers from David Elsworth to George Boughey last month, many are excited to see SONGKRAN in action again this weekend. Rightfully seen as the standout pick with the bookmakers on Saturday, the four-year-old was has claimed back-to-back victories and is seen as a budding group racer. Really impressing at this very track on July 10th when picking up the win in the Free Tips Daily On attheraces.com Handicap, SONGKRAN should on paper be too strong for the chasing pack this weekend.

Elsewhere, really impressing prior to racing’s enforced break, CHARLIE ARTHUR (11/1 with Paddy Power) could certainly be worth a look at each-way for those of you looking for an outside shout.
